  • “Durcan’s copious bitter-sweet clowning is a way of telling the truth slant,” Seamus Heaney wrote in the Times Literary Supplement. That comment captures perfectly the tone of these poems: laughing at the absurdities of life, but also documenting the inescapability of death. Indeed, many of the poems are elegies to absent friends, as in these lines of tribute to Michael Carr: “That surely is who and what he was – / A brightening in the skies on days of blackest rain and coldest shores.

    First time I've come across his poetry, which probably shows my ignorance as this is his 22nd collection. I was a bit thrown though as the blurb on the book cover didn't really match up for me with the contents. Instead of "railing against bankers" there was an awful lot of "in memoriam" poems for friends and neighbours. Maybe he is going to a lot of funerals these days. Enjoyed it, but didn't get excited by it, just few wry smiles.

    A smashing collection: full of humour, light, profundity and life-enhancement.
